RAW Material Company
RAW Material Company is a center for art, knowledge and society in Dakar. It is an initiative involved with curatorial practice, artistic education, residencies, knowledge production, and archiving of theory and criticism on art. The programme is trans-disciplinary and is equally informed by literature, film, architecture, politics, fashion, cuisine and diaspora. The Raw Material Company also includes the Raw Gallery, a 100-square-meter exhibition space, and the Raw Residency, which provides accommodation for international artists, curators, and authors specializing in photography, video, and art in public space. For this research we were in dialogue with RAW Material Company members Marie Helene Pereira, Dulcie Abrahams Altass, Fatima Bintou Rassoul Sy and Tabara Korka Ndiaye.
